America actually has a pretty wide range of cheeses we developed.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of ... an_cheeses

American cheese is so called because it is typically a blend of different cheeses that are melted together, which is about as American as a cheese can get. There are actually higher quality American cheeses out there which are blends of colby, cheddar, swiss, and Monterey Jack, amongst other cheeses.

Hate on America for whatever, but not our cheeses. We're the country that brought you everything from parmesan to Swiss to Muenster.

Good american cheese has been around ever since Europeans arrived. You really think Pennsylvania Dutch or others with similar tastes are buying processed cheese? I've eaten some of the best cheese on the planet made by local cheese makers. Rogue River blue will tune up any salad in creation.

I am sure that older, traditional America had good cheese. But what do Americans eat today? The world's worst cheese.

This one brings back an embarrassing memory

At Princeton a few of us were invited by a charming young socialite to an exclusive jet set party in New York. The lobby of the apartment building was empty except for one polite guard (weating a blazer you know) who smoothly escorted us to an elevator.

The elevator opened right inside the girl's apartment. (I still wonder how that works.)

Massive speakers were playing disco music in a giant room with polished wood floor, devoid of furnishings. In the middle of the room a famed Japanese designer (I think it was Kenzo), ponytail and all, was dancing --- all by himself.

I was Clem Caddiddelhopper, just rolled off the turnip truck. Not quite sure how to "blend". I sidled up to the buffet. Didn't recognize a single thing on there.... until... Saw this cheese, an entire wheel of it, uncut. "Ah" I thought. "A cheesecake!" I eagerly cut myself a nice wide slice. I love cheesecake. Plate and fork in hand, I opened a conversation with someone. Listening intently, I took a large bite....

:oops:

What a cheesy thread
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Hopefully it is a thread that will be safe from accusations that cheeses of the world are part of a Zionist plot....

Even the local supermarket is loaded down with all sorts of imported traditional cheeses as well as all kinds of American made artisan cheese varieties. You need to go to a different store...or is Texas stuck in a cheese wizz rut?

Needs more English cheese. Where's the Cheddar, Cheshire, Wensleydale or Red Leicester?
